Innkeepers, hosts and your Grand Dames, this Day's for you.  Celebrate, celebrate any way you like.

Thanks to Touch of Ireland, New Haven, Connecticut for putting me in touch with the B&B.  She ref. a new innkeeper, we teamed up and are doing a giveaway for National Day and got a free ad in the Courant.

Opportunity knocks.  Answer.  Just be sure it's not a scam.  Eye-wink

Hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, oh, my, Toto.  But it's that time of year again and we plan to celebrate.  This year I'm running another FB carousel ad (best as I can figure out their software.  LOL) and will host a few properties on it.  I've room for about three B&B, inn properties so if you'd like yours noted, post me here or on FB w/photo of your property, slogan and (or) web addy.  We'd a great response last year so why not do it again!  Seems the most exposure and bang for the buck.  Again, no charge.  Just limited spaces so it's first come first served.  International, global...makes no difference.  All welcome.

Lost phones, net during hurricane and am just a little behind but can still get it done on time.  Need this in by Sept. 22nd. to start copy. 

 

Inn-joy much!

Bed and Breakfast Day 2016 FB campaign was a success.  We got over 4,000 hits, look-sees etc.  To this day, they are still trickling in.  Not bad for a low-no budget!  Happy holidays!

Jcam, Inn-deed.  Every B&B, Inn can participate and go as big or small as they care to.  I'll do the shout-outs.  I'll see if I can locate copy of the wonderful article a travel writer did a few years back.  The innkeepers who were game (who replied) got a nice paragraph plus size mention on how they were celebrating the Day.  No cost (some work on all our parts) but it was an article to be proud of.

Inn-cidently, there's some kook going around social media saying I took money from B&B Innkeepers to fund a movie that never happened.   I NEVER  took a nickel, dime, penny from any B&B, Inn peep, associations for anything.  I do know that one year the historic district in St. Augustine got the whole B&B community involved and had a mayoral declaration, ribbon cutting, cake, music etc.  They handled it all on their own.  And if anything, I've spent my own time and money supporting the Inn-dustry where I could.  Proclaiming the Day was one such way.  And I don't mind as the B&B, Inn-dustry has special meaning to me.  Someday I'll share the why.

Anyhow, look out for a misinformed person committing libel, slander going by Dan or Daniel.  I'll not say anymore.  You're a savvy bunch and know a fraud when you read one. Eye-wink

JBloggs, contact me if you can.  E-mail, PM, a call is fine.  Thanks.

I know its crap as watched the film and knew about it - neither cost me anything and was never asked and no one on here or FB was asked or I would have known. Looking forward to the next books! which we will buy and pay money for same as any other book!

Thank you for that, Jcam.  It's appreciated.  Just hurts when lies are spewed about.  Anyway, I'm still searching my files for that article.  I'd like to read it again myself.  Happiest of holidays to you and yours!

I'm Touch of Ireland in New Haven and do not remember this person.  But then again that was a year ago and my mind may have blocked out the call and who I may have referred her too.

We can all meet here and have a drink together. That is about all I can muster up at this late date.
